I have to say it guys...the NHLPA is falling apart
Holik is a overpaid bum... if he doesn't get his 10 MIL a year watchout he might go home to mommy
Actually, if that was the case he would side with Madden.
Holik is one of the players who has the LEAST to gain from this lockout. Think about it, he's got an absolutely long, gross contract. He is going to lose millions and millions.
Unlike other ultra-talented players, he has no hope (whatever the next CBA looks like) to EVER get close to those numbers again.
His time is now.
Same with Kaspuritis (sp)? Jeez he has a right to voice his opinion and the players are just the greedy ones...they're the ones making 6/7 figure salaries.
And there I was thinking the players were interested in coming to a mutually beneficial agreement with the owners!
I can't understand how grown men on both sides can actually think they can "get it all" in a conflict like this.
your @$$!... :lol
I'd love to watch you say that to holik's face and then laugh as he dismantled you without breaking a sweat, sending you home to your mommy. By all accounts, bobby holik is a character guy, a well respected player in the locker room who busts his tail for his team every night. and don't kid yourself, kiddo, he'd crush you.
I love how a couple of players disagreeing with each other in the media is "the NHLPA falling apart", but the fact that many of the owners hate each others guts and will actually blow millions of dollars to spite each other (Jacobs-Illitch and Karmanos-Illitch come to mind) isn't viewed as a big deal.
They also conveniently fail to mention that the owners have a major fine awaiting them if they come out and speak in the media.
$1 million fine will shut up even the grumpiest of owners, at least for a few months.
And then Habs could sue for damages, and Holik would be out of part of the 10million dollar contract when these morons finally do get their act together and get back out on the ice.
suing = running to your mommy. I'd expect that from "habs fans" based on what I've seen of them on this board.
One owner has already been fined. I can't remember who it was. It was an undisclosed amount.
Surprised Karmanos hasn't been fined since he basically said the same things.
I don't care if he can beat me up he is still overpaid. But I can still kick your ass. :lol I love keyboard tough guys.
Kings owner was fined. Can't spell his last name, but it's something like Lieweke.
Is Holik overpaid? Hell yes. I would say that Rangers wasted less money (percentage wise) on Holik than that Habs did on Audette, McCay, Brisbois or Rivet. Just something to consider.
He'll never see $3m again after this contract let alone the $8.5m he's giving up by missing this season. You'd think he'd sign anything the NHL brought up provided it grandfathered his current deal in.
That wasn't for breaking ranks, it was for backing Bettman a little to vigourously. He basicly called the NHLPA and players greedy and other things which Bettman felt was not helping the general feeling between the two sides.
Bobby Holik is a peice of ****, and he should retire right away and donate the reaming of his contract to chairty for sucking so bad.
A very appropriate typo when it comes to Holik and his contract.
Ignorance is bliss
I must add that it really makes me feel poorly to keep reading Linden's comments on the matter. Oh well.
Holik can burn in hell.Period.At least Madden is smart
Wait a second
Agreed. Stupid Holik is one of the main causes of this problem...
